Blend­ing the im­age

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

Paint­ing with lay­ers en­able you to work on el­e­ments with­out com­pro­mis­ing the en­tire im­age, but gen­er­at­ing too many lay­ers fea­tur­ing lone el­e­ments can be overwhelming and slow you down. So there’ll come a time when you can ei­ther choose to col­lapse your stack, re­duce the num­ber of lay­ers and paint over ev­ery­thing, or you can con­tinue to work with sep­a­rate lay­ers. I rec­om­mend pick­ing some val­ues and colours from the back­ground and paint­ing over your lay­ers with a soft air­brush on a very low Opac­ity. This will af­fect the lo­cal colour and sim­u­late a fog that brings colours to­gether. It’s also good to re­de­fine the edges of your shapes and el­e­ments, so that the light is co­he­sive and blended cor­rectly.
